I get it. You just spent all your rent money to go see Sigur Rós Tuesday night with the rest of Denton - and the curtain projections were amazing, and the band was "killing it," and you were in the pit, and you cried a little during that one song that reminded you of that one time that everything was right with the world and, then laughed a little when the girl wouldn't stop screaming "I LOVE YOU JONSI," and then cried a little again because the strobes were brighter than the sun, and it was the greatest thing you've ever seen or will ever see in all the world EVER. I get that. So let me welcome you back to the very non-Icelandic world of Denton where you can continue to see bands "kill it" all week (as in please kill me now if I ever hear that phrase again). In fact, lets make a pact right now: bands shall not be referred to as "killing it" ever again because trust me they aren't. When the poop hits the fan and the killing actually begins, my bet is that whatever musicians you thought were "killing it" will actually be the first ones to go. I mean of course unless they are like really, really, REALLY killing it, like Sigur Rós killed it on Tuesday.
